Have you ever imagined a world where your artwork could come to life?

Our new interactive digital installation, Sketch Aquarium, has launched at the Museum! This new piece allows children to design their own sea creatures and watch as they come to life on a twenty by ten foot screen. Children’s creations become an important element of a larger piece of constantly expanding artwork, this not only provokes a sense of being but also helps children grasp the concept of cause and effect.

This is your opportunity to be a part of this groundbreaking piece. 

Be a part of it

Our goal is to raise $50,000 by June 30 in order to keep our fish swimming. As one of our first installations incorporating 21st century technology, we will be continually updating to ensure the most interactive digital art and science experience for children and families. Your contribution can help make this happen. 

With a donation of $250, your family will be recognized on a Sketch Aquarium fish outside of the piece. And with a generous donation of $1,000 or more, not only will your family be recognized on a displayed fish- but you will also receive an invitation to our exclusive Rain house Society event complete with artist meet and greet. Each contribution will be MATCHED dollar for dollar!

Donate today!
